Who We Are
Welcome to the Northern Virginia District
We are the Northern Virginia District of the United Methodist Church.
Prior to July 2022 we were the Arlington and Alexandria Districts.
Northern Virginia District Clergy can find information about Resource Groups, Clergy meetings, and more online in our Clergy section.
Our laity make ministry happen at their local churches, in their communities, and throughout the world. Find resources for laity and more on our Laity page.
District Conference is November 4!Registration is REQUIRED
District Conference will be on Saturday, November 4 at St. Matthew’s UMC. We will also have a virtual option.
As part of District Conference, we are responsible for electing 100 at-large members to represent the Northern Virginia District at Annual Conference in June. We NEED you to nominate individuals from your congregation to be on the ballot to fill this important role. You can find the Nomination form (to be filled out by the nominee) HERE.
Our District Staff strives to help churches reach their communities by providing training and resources.
